The Paul Creighton Project's Tribute to Jamiroquai - July 31, 2019 Foothills Park 7-9pm
The Paul Creighton Project (the PCP): The collective efforts of musicians devoted to the art of sonic quality, blending the diversity of their refined musical tendencies with raw, unbridled instrumental chops. It unites Portland’s finest jazz and soul players with the songwriting and vocal talent of Intervision front-man Paul Creighton, evoking sounds along the vein of Steely Dan and Stevie Wonder. A PDX superband if there ever was one, the PCP draws upon the strengths of its members to create a soulful, groovy playlist of pop music for adults. Spanning cover music from Michael Jackson, Earth Wind and Fire, Tower of Power to Herbie Hancock and the Meters, the PCP has the funky musical prowess to play any material.
The band currently the PCP features Brian Harris on keys and vocals, Jay “Bird” Koder on guitar, Damian Erskine on bass, Reinhardt Melz on drums, Joshua Cliburn on saxophone, and Dick Titterington on Trumpet. The band also hosts soul virtuoso, Miss Leisa Hart to round out the stunning vocal showcase.
